    I was planning to buy xenforo, but i wanted to know, does this have a CMS?

    is the resource manager similar to ip.board nexus? or downloads, and is the seo easy to use. I have tried the demo but it seems a bit hard to navigate.

    The resource manager is similar to downloads. There is no CMS built in. The SEO features are built in and activated by default.

    Ok well my site is fairly new and it's not on google ATM, how effective will it be? what will roughly be the time to be put on search engines? also would i need someone to handle SEO on a monthly basis, if it's still a new site? or can i leave it up to xenforo to handle this problem and save money.

    Also how effective is it in this regard? will there be a CMS in later versions?

    We don't know what the future holds.
    Buy the software for the current features.

    Thats fine, but that isn't really nice to say buy the software for current features, I understand that I will purchase the software for what it holds, I am just asking a few questions for answers that benefit not only me but the new users who will browse this section, please be considerate and don't use smart ass comments.

    Thank you.

    Sorry about that.
    Yes, XenForo will have CMS.
    Yes XenForo will have Blog.
    Yes, XenForo will have everything you can imagine.

    In later versions.

    Axed99, they aren't 'smart ass' comments.

    They are valid comments.

    XenForo don't release road maps listing what add ons they are going to create. While they haven't ruled out a CMS, there is no way of knowing for sure whether it will come in the future.

    I understand that they don't have a road map, but yes it is a smart ass comment, I was just wondering if they have updated anything in the news and announcements, I signed up today and haven't really looked there and was asking basically if it's been mentioned. Yes it is a smart ass comment, because if it wasn't there wouldn't be the extra "Buy the software for the current features", of course that what I plan to do, but sometimes it's nice to know if anything is coming in the future, or if they have mentioned anything. I hope you understand what I am saying.

    If it is in regards to the post you made about asking whether it will be in future versions, these posts might interest you from the developers:

    Thank you oman, do you know about the SEO though will it be effective even though my domain isn't on google yet? as this is the main concern before i buy the software.

    Unfortunately, I have no knowledge on SEO-related stuff. Sorry.

    My site got indexed pretty quickly, and I didn't need to use any search engine optimization to do so. I would say a few days to a week, depending on the site. As for the monthly basis, it depends really on whether or not you want to pay someone to handle it and if you want to increase your presence by paying to do optimization. You should be able to leave XenForo to safely handle your SEO, as it is built in out of the box.

    Wow ok great, I think I will purchase it, yes I have a company doing my SEO at the moment, but if I can just get on google, then I won't need them anymore :)

    Well yes, you will get on Google. And you definitely won't regret purchasing the software. (y)
